First female Valuer General appointed for NSW

The NSW Government today announced the appointment of Sally Dale as the State’s new Valuer General.

Ms Dale (pictured) has extensive private and public sector experience in property valuation, in particular in rating and land taxation. She is also an experienced leader with a track record of delivering large-scale organisational change.

Her experience includes acting as the Executive Director of Valuer General NSW.

Ms Dale will set the standards and policies for the land valuation system and the determination of compensation in the compulsory acquisition process.

The appointment is for 12 months commencing on 1 June 2023 during which time a full and open recruitment process will be undertaken prior to the statutory appointment of a Valuer General for a period of 7 years.

Minister for Lands and Property, Steve Kamper, welcomed Ms Dale’s appointment.

“Ms Dale’s experience, technical skills and industry knowledge made her an excellent choice as the NSW Valuer General,” he said.

“Since the role of NSW Valuer General was first created over 100 years ago, Ms Dale is the first female to be appointed to this position.

“Whilst certainly overdue, this is a milestone to be celebrated.”

Minister for Women, Jodie Harrison, applauded the historic appointment.

“It is great to see the NSW Government continuing to deliver on its commitment to appoint women in more leadership positions.”

“I congratulate Ms Dale on her historic appointment and I believe her knowledge and skills will be hugely appreciated in the role of Valuer General.”
